Weight has always been a battle for me and Spark has been a helpful place to keep me focused on my health journey. It does help having others who truly understand how hard this really can be and I love my SP teams and friends!

Member Since: 3/20/2008

My Goals:
5% Challenge: Make the 5% mark during the fall challenge!
Ditch the Dr. Pepper!

My Program:
Fitness at home. (Body weight strength/core. Wii Fit. Cardio.... still working on this due to knee injury.)

Personal Information:
A 59 year old stay-at-home mom to a daughter (18) and son(16). I have been married to my hubby for 38 years as of 10/9/20. My son has autism so I spend lots of time advocating for him with teachers at school. My daughter is a licensed cosmetologist and while trying to get started in her own salon she works to pay bills.

I work from home part-time as a Support Broker. This means I support families with their documentation and budget monitoring for the funds qualified for through Health & Welfare to assist their special needs.

I am a Wellness Advocate for doTerra Essential Oils. I am a casual sharer...not currently out there pushing the business side!

    Give thanks for each new morning with its light for rest and shelter at night, for health and food, for love and friends, for everything thy goodness sends.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning." Albert Barnes

    There's not a day in all the year
    But holds some hidden pleasure,
    And looking back, joys oft appear
    To brim the past's wide measure.
    But blessings are like friends, I hold,
    Who love and labor near us.
    We ought to raise our notes of praise
    While living hearts can hear us.

    One verse from the poem "Thanksgiving," by Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

    Let us be glad for those who have blessed us at this time and thank them.
    Thank you, my friend, for the blessing you have been to me.

    May God Bless your Thanksgiving and give you peace.

    Yeah, that happens sometimes. I'm glad that the kitty has a good new home and was taken care of.
